LeBron James Hand Picks NBA 2K14 Soundtrack

NBA_2K14_LeBron_James_0002

Now that LeBron James is immune to all the criticism for not being able to win NBA Championships, having just climbed that mountain two seasons in a row as back-to-back NBA Finals MVP, he’s opening the door for haters to bitch and snipe at him for something else: his taste in music.

For the first time, 2K Sports gave control over producing the soundtrack to one of its cover athletes. With this power, King James hand picked 20 songs to make up the soundtrack for NBA 2K14. Some folks will love the mix of songs and genres. Others will no doubt hate it. Or fall somewhere in the middle like me.

Sample the complete soundtrack now at the NBA 2K14 Spotify page.

“2K is letting me take control of some important elements in NBA 2K14, including this year’s soundtrack,” said James, who successfully defended the Miami Heat’s world championship in the NBA Finals, while winning his second straight NBA Finals MVP award. “I love that I’m the first NBA 2K cover athlete to choose the soundtrack.”
